OPINION

             FOR THE ATTENTION OF THE EUROPEAN PARLIAMENT

                                                              THE COUNCIL

                                                              THE COMMISSION

Proposal for a directive of the European Parliament and of the Council relating to tyres for motor vehicles and their trailers and to their fitting (codified text)

COM(2011)0120 of 11.3.2011 – 2011/0053(COD)

Having regard to the Inter-institutional Agreement of 20 December 1994 on an accelerated working method for official codification of legislative texts, and in particular to point 4 thereof, the Consultative Working Party consisting of the respective legal services of the European Parliament, the Council and the Commission met on 17 March, 18 May and 23 June 2011 for the purpose of examining, among others, the aforementioned proposal submitted by the Commission.

At those meetings(1), an examination of the proposal for a directive of the European Parliament and of the Council codifying Council Directive 92/23/EEC of 31 March 1992 relating to tyres for motor vehicles and their trailers and to their fitting resulted in the Consultative Working Party’s establishing, by common accord, as follows.

1) In the list of annexes, the acronyms "(LI)" and "(KG)" were added in the title of Appendix 2 to Annex II. The adding of those two acronyms constitutes an adaptation to the existing text of the list of annexes of Directive 92/23/EEC, which should have been identified by using the appropriate adaptation markers.

2) In the English language version of the draft codified text, in Annex II, Appendix 5, Part B, Table 8, in the place of the figure "330" the fifth line should have contained the figure "305", which appeared in the corresponding text as published at page 126 of the English language version of OJ L 129 of 14.5.1992.

3) In point 1.1.3 of Appendix 1 to Annex V, the expression "CC′" should have been identified with adaptation markers.

4) In point 4.3 of Appendix 1 to Annex V, the Greek letter "θ" appearing in the introductory wording should have been identified with adaptation markers.

In consequence, examination of the proposal has enabled the Consultative Working Party to conclude, without dissent, that the proposal is a straightforward codification of existing texts, without any change in their substance.
